Testimony from high-ranking members of the U.S. military who were on duty at the time of the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi attacks revealed the likelihood that the perpetrators of the second terrorist attack on a Central Intelligence Agency facility were not the same assailants who ambushed the U.S. diplomatic mission and torched it and killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and another American, according to Navy Times on Wednesday.
That second terrorist attack -- which killed two CIA contracted operatives -- displayed a sophistication of formal combat experience or training, former Gen. Carter Ham told members of Congress during closed-door hearings on Wednesday. According to Gen. Ham, the attack had all the earmarks of a new group of jihadists who might have capitalized on the original ambush of the U.S. consulate the night before in order to kill American contractors -- one of whom as a former Navy Seal.
